Cool and colorful specimen of Garnet var. Grossular var. Chromian with Clinochlore and Diopside from the famous Jeffrey mine, Quebec, Canada. The crystals to 2mm have rich grass-green color result of Chromium. They have rhombic dodecahedral sharp crystallization, glassy luster and irresistible color. The crystals are gem. Small Clinochlore and Diopside crystals are seen too. Very hard to find one of these now – the mine is closed. For references see the 2013 issue of The Mineralogical Record vol. 44, # 4. Some contacts. On acrylic base.

Marvelous!
